Hey all.
I was pondering a rear rotor/caliper change for the dirt slinger...Tell me what you are running and what you think you could get away with to reduce rotating weight without boiling fluid
Thanks\

Try wilwoods new cut down wave rotor still use a .810 . Cuts down on weight but still have good braking. Not shure on the number.

Hey Racer, thanks again for the advice...Those scalloped rotors are cool(kinda weird looking)..Can you believe 3 lbs, weight advantage(wow) thats a horse power sucker...What are you running for calipers??

We bought the new set of shaped rotors...They are a really trick part...We are wondering about pad wear with them..What does anybody think they will do..I have to think they would speed up wear...Also what does everybody think about puck sizes for front and rear calipers??
We also found out our old drive shaft won't work, and that it was unbelievably heavy (4-5 lbs) compared to the new ones...Boy did we have some rotating weight issues...I'm wondering how much HP at the wheel we were sucking up?? I'd have to say 6 lbs a side with everything put together.
Any thoughts..
